    Title: Application for the Emergency Form for CSBG/ARRA Expenditure 
Report.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed into law 
the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). The 
Recovery Act provided for $1 billion in additional funds to the 
Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) program for Federal Fiscal Year 
2009; however, the grant period runs through FY 2010. As with regularly 
appropriated CSBG funds, Recovery Act funds may be used for the 
reduction of poverty, the revitalization of low-income communities, and 
the empowerment of low-income families and individuals in rural and 
urban areas to become fully self-sufficient.
    To be in compliance with Recovery Act (Pub. L. 111-5) section 
1512(c)(1) through (B), a backup sheet was created to identify the 
various activities that make up the total Federal share of outlays 
reported on the 269A Report line 10(a). The CSBG/ARRA Fund provides 
resources to States, Territories, and Tribes to support work and 
families during this difficult economic period. We plan to issue a 
backup sheet for the 269A Report with instructions for jurisdictions to 
complete, which would provide detailed information to support line 
10(a) of the aforementioned document.
    Failure to collect this data would compromise ACF's ability to
